Description:

Latte Dock, amazing piece of software very customizable.
With the possibility of creating both, a top panel and dock, with everything you need to work.

¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬

It is not new that many of us like the visual aspect of macOS, thinking about that I created this Layout, with a Top Panel and a Dock.
I hope you enjoy it!! };-]

First of all, you need to install Latte Dock and a few Widgets or Plasmoids, to make it work properly.

¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬

> Installing Latte Dock

Warning: The version needed for these layouts to work properly is the Git version of Latte Doc; This Git version brings extra functions that the normal version does not have, such as floating dock, rounded corners, the Sidebar Widget, etc ...
So in the normal versions of the repositories, non-Git version, these functions will have no effect and the Layout will not work correctly, for this reason it is necessary to install the Git version of Latte Dock.


After researching a few ways to make it easier for you to install the Git version of Latte Dock, I have found some ways, but not for all distros, for example: The Manjaro community has in its AUR repositories a packaged version of the version Git de Latte, in OpenSUSE I have found a package of the Git version of Latte, not so for KDE Neon or Kubuntu, I mean, yes, I have found a package version in ".deb" of the Git version of Latte in Launchpad. net, but it is necessary to install dependencies, which makes the compilation process the most recommended option for the installation of Latte Dock Git Version.

So I will leave instructions for installation in Manjaro KDE and OpensSUSE KDE, and for installation in Kubuntu and KDE Neon I will leave the link for the Latte Dock repository on GitHub where the compilation instructions are.

¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬

> Installation of Latte Dock Git Version in Manjaro
There are two ways to install the Git version of Latte Dock in Manjaro.

1. Doing a search on "Pamac"

Open "Pamac" and do a search for "latte dock git", the results will be two versions, one to install and another to compile, so, choose the version to install, since the compilation way takes a little more time, and it is the second form of installation.

2. Doing a Compilation.
There are two ways to compile install the Git version of Latte Dock.

2.1 Open "Pamac" and do a search for "latte dock git", in the results you will find the option "Build" that will compile the version automatically, which will save you from doing the whole process.

2.2 Go to the GitHub repository of Latte Dock and go to the file "INSTALATION.md" there you will find the necessary dependencies that you must install before starting the compilation process.

¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬

> Installation of the Latte Dock Version Git in OpenSUSE KDE.

I have found a packaged version in a ".rpm" file ready to install just by running a command.

Packaged Latte Dock Git Version for OpenSUSE

Installing ".rpm" files
sudo zypper install name-of-latte-package.rpm

On this page there is also the alternative of adding a repository and installing directly from this added repository, so you can choose what way to use to install Latte Dock git version.

¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬

> For installation on Kubuntu and KDE Neon

In these distros the best way to install Latte Dock is to follow the instructions for compilation and installation of the official Latte Dock repository on GitHub, so, go to the link at the bottom and inside the repository look for the file "INSTALLATION.md" and follow the dependency installation and build instructions.

Latte Dock GitHub Repository

¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬

> Importing Themes

To import the themes into Latte Dock you must run Latte Dock and then right click on any part of the Dock, then "Layouts" and "Manage Layouts", when the window opens look for "Import" click and Search where you have saved your downloaded theme file; now double click on the "In Menu" part, so you have access from the menu without opening the "Manage Layouts" window at any time, and that's all. Now you can enjoy any theme you like.

¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬¬

> Widgets or Plasmoids NEDDED!!

For mcOS Catalina Layout to work properly, you need to install these Widgets.
So right click on Plasma desktop and go to "Add Widgets", then "Get New Widgets" and then "Dowload New Plasma Widgets" and search for the next Widgets:

List of Widgets from left to right and Need to install

Left
  • Kpple Menu
  • Application Title

The layout is excellent, and I'll use it all the way.
There's a question, that the icon "launchpad.svg" replaced to Launchpad Plasma doesn't display normally. It just displayes like a white round shape without patterns in it. But the other two icons "ditto-search.svg"

and "sidebarNotification.svg" display well. Could you help me solve it?

Sure, wolfinbanboo, first you must go to the Latte Dock configuration then click on "Rearrange and configure your widgets", then place the cursor on the widget, without clicking, a small menu will appear and deactivate the option "Enable painting for this applet" , that fixes it.

Thanks for reporting it, the next update will be resolved by default, and thanks for your vote, wolfinbanboo };-)

Hello, @marcomurakami, thanks for your comment.

Well, to install the latest version you must go to the github repository (https://github.com/KDE/latte-dock), clone or download the zip file and enter to the "latte-dock" folder, inside is the "INSTALLATION.md" file with all the installation instructions, basically what you do is install some dependencies depending on your distro, in the file are the commands for "Kubuntu, KDE Neon, Arch Linux...", so, open a terminal and execute the dependency installation commands and then execute the file "install.sh", wait for the compilation to finish and you will have the latest version of Latte Dock.

You can vote with 10 if you like the theme, friend };-]

Hello, @archfeh, Thanks for your rating, friend.
The icon pack is OS Catalina: https://www.pling.com/s/Gnome/p/1309810/

So, the widget between battery and clock is the 'network' widget.

Now, first you need to place the widgets on the panel, then right click on the panel and select "edit panel" and then reorder each widget in its place.

The order of the widgets from left to right is as follows:
1. USwitch
2. Aplication title
3. Global Menu
4. System Tray (You need to disable some options, depending on what you need.)
5. Lock / Logout
6. Volume
7. Chili Clock
8. Search
9. Ditto Menu.

And that's it, you can use "Latte Spacer" to place between each widget if necessary.

Thanks again for your rating, @archfeh }:-]
